The plummeting oil price: a guide to the global shockwaves 14.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Oil touches every aspect of our lives and its price is crashing. Here are just some of the mixed blessings that may flow – from cheaper holidays and safer sex to busier roads and more terrorism It doesn’t take a rocket-fuel scientist to see that an early consequence of a fall in the price of crude oil will – eventually – be cheaper petrol, which is plainly good news for motorists. According to the RAC Foundation, Britain’s drivers spent an estimated £2.57bn on fuel last month, about £330m less than they spent in July, when crude oil was still trading at over $100 a barrel. In research done for the Sunday Telegraph, the foundation calculates that the owners of Britain’s 28m cars should save around £4bn this year, compared with what they would have spent had petrol prices stayed at last summer’s level of £1.33 a litre – about £140 per motorist. (And that’s based on petrol prices sticking where they are now; they could yet fall further.) Russia pulls even further away from Europe Woes for Venezuela, Cuba ...

South Sudan: the death of a dream 20.1.2014 The Guardian -- World Latest
In 2011, South Sudan was born on a wave of hope and promise. A little over two years later, civil war is tearing the country apart. What are the roots of the conflict – and can anything be done to halt the slide into chaos? The night before South Sudan, the world's youngest country, was born, sculptor David Morbe worked until 11pm chiselling the finishing touches to his statue of the late father of the nation, John Garang . At the stroke of midnight he was among a cheering, dancing, singing throng as cars tooted horns, churches rang bells, fireworks lit up the night sky and a new clock tower announced: "Free at last." Later, watched by African leaders and foreign dignitaries, and with the help of Chinese engineers, the continent's biggest country was cleaved in two as the flag of the oppressor, Sudan, was lowered and that of hopeful, liberated South Sudan raised. "At that moment, people were crying with joy and I had the same feeling in my heart," says Morbe, 36. "It was a dream." ...
